Because of a craving [ profile] kuzu_no_ha had today, I made GF donuts.

I made GF donuts. BE VERY AFRAID!!!

Recipe (as shown) )
I made sweet potato pie today. I will concede that the crust was a gluten free frozen job from Whole Foods (excellent, BTW), but the rest of it was from scratch.

Still sick, though. Luckily, for the most part the over-the-counter medications seem to be helping. I wrote 2400 words (out of 3000+ that I need) on the white paper for work, and all of my deliverables for school for this week are done except one. With any luck, tomorrow I can finish the paper, the last reading assignment, spend some time with [ profile] kuzu_no_ha and maybe even actually study!

Oh, and eat more pie.

EDIT: Recipe, by request:

Taken from the sadly out-of-print New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival Cookbook, copyright 1984.

* 3 cups cooked, peeled and mashed sweet potatoes
* 1 egg
* 2 tablespoons melted butter
* 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
* 1/2 - 3/4 cup cream
* 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
* 2 teaspoons vanilla
* dash of salt
* 1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar

Mix the potatoes with rotary beater until they are smooth. Then add the other ingredients to the potatoes and beat for 5 minutes. Pour filling into unbaked 9" pie shell, bake for 40-45 minutes at 350-325. Can also be served with a favorite topping: hot rum sauce, ice cream or whipped cream.

As a note, mine took more like 90 minutes to cook, for whatever reason. The standard toothpick testing methodology seemed to work great.
